My name is Andra and I haven't been on Spark since before I was pregnant with son #2 and since having to juggle 2 boys and a husband I've lost my motivation for everything that Spark meant to me. This next journey will be a different one since losing lbs was my main focus before children now my main focus will be finding peace within.

I'm currently at my heaviest and I'm aware of this but the whole year of 2016 has been physically painful. My achilles on my right foot just throbs with pain usually every day and some days are worse than others. I need to see my doctor but I haven't put myself first to do this and I feel like that is problem #1. It's been rough all year but I remain as positive as possible for my family and I will continue to make changes to help myself so I can be there for my loved ones.

Here's to another crooked road to health!!

    What a beautiful family! Your lo is a doll :-) I can't believe how big she is! It's been a struggle getting back into the right mind frame, but I think I'm there! Taking it slow and really working back into it, understanding there are some big differences. Let's do this!

    Hi Andra,

    Stopping by to see how you are doing. :) Know that you are loved and worth it. I think those two thoughts may be the most powerful mantras that we need to tell ourselves.

    Hope you enjoyed your weekend and are ready to tackle this week.

    Smile and have a fabulous day!!!
